A meeting will be held in Ardara tonight to highlight job losses in the area and to plan ways of creating new jobs.
The meeting was called in the wake of the announcement of job losses from Gallaghers Bakery, with a substantial number of employees at the bakery finishing today.
Tonight’s meeting, which is expected to be attended by a number of local TDs and councillors, has been called by traders and community representatives to discuss future strategy.
Ardara Traders’ Spokesperson Stephen McCahill says more and more young people are leaving the area.
“We have to step back and take a long hard look at where we are going. There is no town or village that is not affected.
“All you have to do is to look at any local football or GAA team and see the number of young people who have left them because they have been forced to emigrate,” he said.Tags:
